The great blue heron is a visual symbol of Charlo and one of Canada’s most spectacular birds.
It aptly symbolizes the marine and aquatic milieu along the shores of the Bay of Chaleurs. The bird can be readily observed at low tide in the small coves that are found around Charlo.
The great blue heron is a regular visitor to Charlo, coming back year after year to roost in the same nest.
